A gentleman was invited for dinner at the home of a good friend. During the meal the families young daughter kept staring at him. He was feeling self concious and checked that he had not dropped food on his shirt or that anything else was not out of place. Finally at the end of tme meal he asked the little girl why she was looking at him so intently. She said she wanted to watch him drink like a fish.

Rotary Minute:
R Clay shared a story from RI Presidnet Jennifer Jones:
Recently, Nick and I spent time in Guatemala, where we met wonderful fellow Rotary members and families who unofficially adopted me as "Tía Jennifer."

On the third day, after visiting Patzún in the mountainous western highlands, we set out for Lake Atitlán, which we needed to reach by nightfall. If we took a back road we could get there faster. Locals told us it had just been repaved and assured us, "You’ll have no problem."

At first, it was a breeze. We wound through misty-green coffee and corn fields covering the hillside like a patchwork quilt. But at a river crossing, we found a bridge washed away. The only way to continue would be to ford the river in our small bus. There were a few tense moments, but we decided to give it a try and, thankfully, we made it across safely.

This adventure reminds me of two important truths in Rotary. One, we rely on local, on-the-ground expertise to do what we do best. And two, sometimes you have to take uncomfortable chances to reach important goals.

Every day, I am honored to learn from our Rotary family. Every lesson is an opportunity to grow, and each story adds a chapter to our collective Imagine Rotary year.

JENNIFER JONES President, Rotary International
